Picture With Santa

Merry Christmas!
It's that time of year again. I took the kids to get the annual picture with Santa yesterday. Do you know what it's like to bathe 3 children, dress them up, load them in the car, drive to the mall, unload the monstrous stroller, pack them all in it, get through the entrance doors (where nobody will hold the door for you), take off all that bulky winter outerwear, brush their hair (Emma has none, so that made it easier), wipe the snotty noses, unhook the straps and take them out of the stroller, set them on Santa's lap and get them ALL to smile at the same time? Piece of cake! Well, Emma didn't smile so much, but at least she wasn't crying.
But we did it and here's the finished product.

OKAY! You are my super hero.. How in the HELL did you make all of that happen? And they all look adorable..
I can't believe no one held the door open for you.. Oh such inconsiderate people.. I don't find that here in Utah.. I have people running to help me.. It's way kid friendly here.. You know, every mormon had like 12 kids.. LOL!
Darling picture, way to get them all there and looking so good!

I have no idea how it got done. It's all a blur to me now. Our next big project is the Christmas card picture. OY!

Yes, I can relate on how hard it is to do that! Maybe you have it a tad harder :) Beyond cuteness!

Love love love the picture !
I look at it over and over and keep looking for duct tape...strings....hands tucked under babies arms...candy dangling in front of them.
HOW IN THE HELL !!

And a great Santa to boot!! This is the best time for photos with Santa with the twins, still young enough to prop up on the ole man but old enough to look awake. That boy is a handsome fella!!

Did you wait in line too? Our lines are so long that they have a clown making baloon animals for the kids while they wait.
